Joshua Dobbs-led final TD drive rallies Vikings to 31-28 victory over Falcons
November 6, 2023
ATLANTA - Quarterback Joshua Dobbs, acquired on Tuesday, threw a 6-yard touchdown pass to Brandon Powell with 22 seconds left to lead the Vikings to a 31-28 victory over the Atlanta Falcons on Sunday.
Dobbs gained key yards with his legs, none bigger than a 22-yard run on fourth-and-7 from the Atlanta 34 on the winning drive. He also had an 18-yard touchdown run in the third quarter.
The Vikings hadn't used an injury replacement at quarterback since Case Keenum in 2017. They had used two by the start of the second quarter on Sunday. Yet, somehow, they won their fourth game in row, beating the Falcons in what might have been their wildest game of the season.
